Or, put differently, the /only/ reason for channel numbers in Myth is to
allow the user to specify which channel should be tuned while in
LiveTV. (And, to allow the user--by specifying and identical channel
number and channel callsign--to indicate that listings for that channel
should not be repeated in the program guide.) So, if you define two
channels (i.e. 1 from one source and 101 from another source) with
different numbers (regardless of whether the content is the same), you
can select which one is tuned by using the appropriate channel number.
And, since the channel numbers are for users (not for Myth), users can
change them as they desire.
Use the channel editor in mythtv-setup or MythWeb.
